Hello. Do you have a program where you live called division of developmental disabilities? If do they can help get you extra support for her. I think you should look into the autism spectrum as well with her. I'm sure some of it is for the attention. With any child with ADD any attention is better then no attention. You have to be an advocate for your own health. It took me a year of bugging and being in the docs face about my back and I finally had a left side microdiscectomy on Halloween. I feel the relief already. I feel for your situation and wish I could give you the magic answer . Keep your chin up and each day is a new day.
Sorry, haven't been on the site as much as I use to do to multiple health issues... and just seen this today 11/4... this site is a very good site with very knowledgeable people... after reading your post, first thing that comes to my mind is add/adhd... I am not a doc, so with that being said I am only going by your post... my son has adhd and although he is 23 now... I remember when he was much younger in school they were constantly calling me saying your son is disrupting the class, won't sit still etc..etc..so I took him to a doc and he was finally diagnoses with adhd... if you can I would do some research on doc's who specialize in add/adhd..not saying that's what it is..once again not a doc... but from what I am reading it is very possible..get second and even third opinions by doc's who specialize in this... my prayers r with u and your little one..GOD BLESS..
